李小新 Xiaoxin Li



Hello everybody. My name is Xiaoxin Li (李小新). I was born in Beijing, China and migrated to Australia in 2000, with two children. I lived in Victoria and Northern Territory for 6 years, before arriving in Tasmania in 2006. I hold a Bachelor of Education (Primary Teaching) 2004 from the Charles Darwin University.

Most students of Yellow Class are from Chinese family background and the class is conducted mostly in Chinese. Students are aged from 7 to 12 years of age and they are expected to be able to use basic Chinese greetings; recognise some numbers in Chinese writing, shapes and colours; know 1 or 2 simple Chinese Nursery Rhymes. Teaching materials in Class 3 are 《汉语》series which give priority to listening and speaking skills, supplementary study in reading and writing Chinese characters. Through grammar learning, word replacing, sentence building, traditional Chinese poems, fork stories, songs, nursery rhymes and Videos, we target the students’ vocabulary and sentences building abilities.

By learning the Pinyin and tones, students gradually acquire ability to recognise and read simple Chinese Characters the writing of which is individually programmed, from basic Chinese Radicals to slightly complicated Chinese Characters. We focus on correct character strokes and after each lesson, I would email parents the class feedback and homework which is based on the practice of speaking and Chinese character writing.
